It may look nice, but we are often getting calls when the cultured marble is leaking.
A woman in Pinson called us when she smelled a foul odor from her bathroom. Taking one look at the cultured marble in the shower, we knew which direction to look for a leak.
We often see the cultured marble improperly installed and that leads to a leaks, with water collecting under the shower floor and the pan underneath. We see this with some tile installation, but see more of it in the cultured marble. Of course, when we use tile, we're very careful to install it correctly to prevent leaks.
Based on this history, we recommend not using the man-made cultured marble in showers. If you can find a tile you like, and you have it professionally installed, you'll likely still be enjoying it decades later.
